Elizabeth Lucille Longhorn Grave
Hi there, Kathy!

I'm Everett. I've been walking Oxford Memorial and the three adjoining cemeteries for about a year now. The Lawhorn family plot was pretty easy to locate at the eastern edge (or back end) of Old Oxford Cemetery (aka the back 2/3rds of St. Peter's, Section 2). There are very few places in "section 2" that have shrubbery growing nearby a grave as seen in the partially covered grave photograph originally taken and already posted by Gene Hays. Elizabeth Lucile's grave was obscured by a lot of tree branch and vine overgrowth. The grave is next to a bush-like tree with lots of growing vines wrapped around it, including some thicker picker-spike vines. A few of those vines had to be removed before photo-taking by picking off the individual pickers from about a 6" area of the vines before snapping the vines from both the ground location and the tree. I only had my bare hands (no tools), so you will see a picker vine still sticking out at the bottom left side of the grave in the photo. Sorry that I was unable to remove that today. I was VERY careful, so there's only one tiny 1/4-cm. picker cut to report. (Smiles!) After that, a horizontal branch from the tree itself had to be moved back from obscuring the view of the grave and stepped on temporarily in order to take the shot. Hoping you are satisfied with the newly updated photo. In fact, oddly enough, I'm about to fulfill another photo request that Gene Hays himself put in over the past week as well. Anyway, hope you enjoy the shot! I'm about to submit edits to the birth, death, and grave location statuses on the virtual memorial, so need to worry about that. Have a blessed day! :-)

RE: Mary Isabell Rowland Martindale
Robert Thaddious Martindale is my wifes grandfather.
I had been spelling his name Thaddeous until I found his signature on his WW1 draft card where he spelled it Thaddious. He just went by Thad. If Belles grave is unmarked but can be located I will make an effort to get a marker placed.

RE: Photo request issue - Memorial Park Cemetery
Kathy! Thank you SO much for your efforts! I've never been to the cemetery so she may very well be unmarked! All I know for sure is the plot number that was given to me by the office when i called to check her location within the cemetery. They did tell me at the time who she was buried by, and I didn't write it down... it wasn't family that I know of.

Thanks so much!!

Do you know if Bells grave is marked? I noticed you created the memorial. Would like to have a picture of marker if there is one. If not would like to proceed toward getting the grave marked. We have been looking for her burial place for years. She is my wifes great-grandmother.

Hi Kathy

I am writing to ask if this memorial can be transferred to me. This is my grandmother. I don't know what happened to the memorial I put up on find-a-grave, but it apparently has been taken down. :(

I appreciate you putting this up. Have a good day!
